  • 5 strips bacon
  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • salt
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup shredded Italian blend cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.  
    In a large oven-safe cast iron skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon until crisp.  Remove, cool, and crumble.  Carefully spoon away all but about 2 tablespoons of the bacon grease.  
  • Increase the heat to medium-high and add the Brussels sprouts to the hot pan. Cook, stirring infrequently to allow the sprouts to develop a dark brown color and begin to get crispy around the edges.  Cook until nearly tender.  Season with salt.  
  • Add the garlic.  Cook 1 minute.  Remove from the heat.  Pour the cream over the sprouts and sprinkle with the bacon and Italian cheese blend.  Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
